Senior Scheduling Manager (Former Employee) – Rockmart, GA – 19 June 2017
Leadership had difficulty with any new ideas on processes. No change was the motto. Antiquated systems of operation. Compensation was OK. No possible way of job advancement with the leadership that was in place when I worked there. Culture was a workforce of fear of job loss at all times.
I Love the work that I do supporting the war fighters
Machinist (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – 7 June 2017
You never know what to expect day to day. I have learned how to best work on composite materials. Good managers. Good workers always wanting to do the best job possible.Hardest part of the job is paperwork. Knowing that the parts we make help and support the war fighters of our country.
Test Supervisor/Test Manager (10+ years) (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – 12 May 2017
its a lousy place to work. people are very unhappy. Mainly management doesn't seem to care about whether the employee stays or goes. I can not stress enough that this company isn't worth the trouble of giving a review.
Management is tearing this business apart. They lie to employees as well as the customer. No wonder they don't have work. Meggitt need to unload the Baltimore plant or bring in management they may be able to save it.The need to pull a undercover boss on this building. It's a real shame that the hourly people will be out of work from there actions.
Meggitt Baltimore needs to find their identity!!!!
Engineer (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – 4 April 2017
No one in senior leadership can tell you any short/long term site or company wide goals. They deploy band aide methodology to address problems that previous band aides did not solve. The SLT makes commitments to customers without knowing the ins and outs of what's involved then turnaround and scapegoat the very team that should have been consulted when the dates slide unfavorably. Meggitt Baltimore has some very talented and intelligent engineers/ technicians but it has amount to nothing due to mismanagement and incompetence. Don't take my word for it........ask any of their customers.
Scapegoat (Former Employee) – Stevenage, Hertfordshire – 1 April 2017
It was a good place to work when it was cobham but when Meggitt took over, clueless & aggressive yanks getting rid of anyone half decent as obviously didn't want to be shown up! Shafted the staff by not honouring legal and contractual commitments.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Loughborough, Leicestershire – 14 January 2017
What could be a decent place to work is spoilt by a full team of management with no clue what goes into a single product or any idea how to speak to a human. Very poor and unfair treatment of decent hard working staff.
So much faith put into the MPS system - which is a load of bull. Need to invest in machinery so badly, until such a time they will continue to make poor products and keep losing contracts.
If you work in the office you can have a made up management position within 6 months. Work on the shop floor and be good at your job and you'll probably be made redundant.
Overall if you want to work at a place with pointless meetings all day, and regularly get stabbed in the back - this is the place for you. On the flipside if you're decent at brown nosing you will go far.
Plenty of decent people on the shop floor.
Top heavy structure with far too many useless managers.
All of the confusion of a start up, with none of the energy or drive
Management (Former Employee) – Akron, OH – 12 December 2016
I worked at the Akron, Ohio office with some great people. There were so many broken tech and business processes in place from 2014 to 2016 all over. It took a month to get purchase orders approved, no automated processes were online. They use a PDF for every kind of process in HR. This is the worse on-boarding experience you will ever go through. I had to fill out 20 forms to get on-boarded. HR was in disarray most times. You have to wait a week or more to get a response to a simple question. It took IT a week to get a laptop and 5 days for a phone. All processes were written for a formal and mature Fortune 500 companies, but they were executed at a small business level with chaos and terrible results. Expectation for job success were vague and undefined most times. No negotiation on starting salary either take it or leave it. Interviews were skewed to make you think you'd be doing one job, then day one, you get a different title! Most people in management were struggling just to keep their heads above water. Projects were always being delayed by UK for one reason or another, usually no funding. Robbing one projects funding to replace another's was common. No money to replace anything, but the infrastructure was crumbling all around.
Smart people here, but scattered, not organized
Lack of opportunities, too many policies, unreal, unclear expectations
former employee (Former Employee) – shepshed – 6 December 2016
an absolute nightmare to work for the management are clueless from top to bottom picking on the hardworkers and genuine employees whilst polish and others ethnic groups get away with absolutely every scam possible same old people grabbing up all the overtime to sit or stand around doing nothing kids in charge of the composites department that are totally clueless constant management changes for the better apparently but if they last 6 months their lucky if you have an opinion this is not the place for you if you like a good comedy however it's certainly a good watch
Operative (Former Employee) – Shepshed – 9 November 2016
I've never known a place like this in my life. So much preferential treatment to Asian/Polish etc workforce. And they are the ones who get away with murder. Coming in on overtime & just standing around chatting. And you cant say a bad word about them to HR. It just falls on deaf ears. People taking credit for "your" work, the hard workers often getting shafted by team leaders or managment.
If you want to get your head down & get on with your work, this isn't the place for you. However if you want to get on your knees behind a managers rear, then you will fit right in
Contractor (Former Employee) – Suwannee, GA – 23 September 2016
Friendly environment. Great camaraderie between co-workers. Everyone pitches in and lends a hand. Some departments are overworked and burn out due to huge amounts of mandatory overtime when large projects have to be pushed through. However, once it is over, there is definitely an understanding to take time off and decompress.
Friendly environment, free coffee, most times lunches and leftovers for the workers
Crazy busy during major contract deadlines., Then gets very slow when projects are over., No balance between crazy busy and dead stop on projects.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – McMinnville, OR – 12 August 2016
Great site for manufacturing improvement, but lacked updated equipment, and had large employee turnover. Competitive management salaries, but balance between work and home/family was far from even. Production employee salaries lacking.
